Leading weight loss aid Proactol is seeking a new team member with a big appetite to test the product’s fat binding properties.

The position is open to both men and women and the successful applicant will have their calorific intake and weight closely monitored by medics. Job spec here:

A spokesman said: “Proactol Ltd is currently looking to grow their established team by hiring at a ‘professional couch potato’ to test their clinically proven natural fat binder in the real world.

“We know it’s incredible, but it’s true. We are willing to pay you £23,750 a year to continue doing EXACTLY what you do every single day, and all we ask in return is that you eat 16% more calories a week - or 400 more calories a day – whilst introducing Proactol into your diet.

“The ideal candidate should not already be on a diet but eat a healthy balance of carbohydrates, fats and proteinsand be prepared to increase their existing calorie intake by 16% a week by eating fatty foods such as Chinese takeaways, fish and chips, pizza or McDonalds

“Essentially we want you to be yourself. No strings, no catches. At Proactol we are looking to hire the ultimate average Joe who isn’t afraid to eat more, be themselves and become a professional couch potato for a living.

“Your basic salary will be £23,750 a year and every day will feel like a holiday in this job as you will get paid to be you.”

The tester will help the company’s medical experts learn more about the health benefits of taking Proactol – which has been clinically proven to absorb up to 30% of fat intake.

After an initial in house monitoring period the successful applicant will be given the opportunity to work from home – with supplies being delivered to their door.

The spokesman added: “It’s the ultimate work from home job.
